September 11-14, 2017 international experts from science and industry demonstrate the business value of smart data services at SEMANTiCS 2017
Experts from science and industry meet at Europe’s biggest Linked Data and Semantic Web event to present and discuss latest achievements, challenges and future perspectives of new data management practices. The conference for Semantic Systems is now in its 13th edition and run by a mixed industry and research consortium built by Semantic Web Company (Austria), Institute for Applied Informatics (Germany), University of Applied Science St.Pölten (Austria) and the dutch partners VU, TNO and Kadaster, together with Wolters Kluwer as major industry sponsor.
Most companies and public administrations nowadays are struggling to catch up with new data management practices, either by initializing a data strategy from scratch or by adjusting their old strategy to the affordances of new technological environments, legal frameworks or business models. The Semantics conference gives insights into data management strategies, discusses cases of data-driven business models and gives advice on how to catch up with latest developments at the dawn of smart, networked data.
The exchange between industry and research is facilitated by a rich program consisting of six keynotes from companies like EA Games, Wolters Kluwer, and OTTO, followed by a total of 36 industry and 25 scientific presentations, 17 workshops, a poster and demo area and numerous social side events.
